Odessa, Ukraine (PortSEurope) September 15, 2017 – The Georgian Minister of Economy and Sustainable Development Giorgi Gakharia has attended the recent International Transport Conference in Odessa, Ukraine.
The conference was focussed on discussion on transit corridors, connections between countries and their economies, and the transport corridors linking the Chinese market to the European.
Corporate representatives from Georgian Railway, Batumi Port and Batumi Container Terminal also attended.
Georgian Railway CEO, Mamuka Bakhtadze, made a presentation at the forum.
Gakharia commented, “This is a strategic direction for the development of our economy. We discussed the vital role Georgia plays as a gateway [between East and West] which may have an important function on both eastern and western, and on the south-north corridors. That’s why we’re always present at such forums, trying to convert talks into concrete results, results like the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway, Anaklia Deep Sea Port and more”.
